Roughly 100 New Yorkers rallied against hate on Saturday night in Union Square, hours after a neo-Nazi maniac plowed his car through a crowd of peaceful marchers in Charlottesville, Va.
Many held signs such as “Racist coward in the White House = racist cowards in the streets” and “End White Supremacy” in the dusk protest.
Others held candles in mourning for the violent day in the home of the University of Virginia, where one woman was killed in the car attack, and two state troopers died in a helicopter crash.
Such hastily arranged gatherings took place in many places around the country. Hundreds of protesters marched in Oakland, Calif., and scores marched in Los Angeles.
